I stayed home today because I'm not feeling too well. Actually, I am feeling a little better than I was last night. But, that's not the dominating issue in my life right now. I was online reading journals and getting excited about the AOL-J anniversary celebrations. I was thinking about doing a special entry today to show my J-Land spirit, maybe even break down and create a float for the parade, fly my flag, and all that good stuff. I was in the middle of catching up on Judith's journal (she's the artist of the beautiful torch to the right) when an IM came in from my cousin.
My mom was taken to the hospital. She couldn't reach me because my line is busy when I am on my computer. (Dial-up stinks!) It seems my mom is experiencing shortness of breath and tightness in the chest. I'm really kind of worried probably mostly because I don't know what I can do to help her. I thought about jumping on a plane and going to see her but I realize that's an irrational thought. So, I am in a wait and see mode right now. However, it doesn't make for a fun place to hang out. I'm not really in the festive J-Land mode. But, hopefully, all will work out and I can do something nice for the celebrations in a day or two. Please keep my mother in your thoughts and prayers. I know I've moaned about her here and she's not a perfect person. But, she's my mother, the only one I'll ever have, and I do love her. Peace.
